Moreta Is On Trial For Drugs In SDNY As NYPD Admits Phone Search, No Habla Espanol

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 16 – Alberto Moreta is on trial for conspiracy to distribute narcotics, before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein. Inner City Press is covering it.

  On the morning of June 15, a New York Police Department officer was cross examined at length about initial co-defendant Jesus Manuel Rios Quintero walking by the officer and getting into Moreta's car. 

The officer said, Yeah, I've seen a Target shopping bag before. 

  By the afternoon another, slicker NYPD officer was on the witness stand.

He acknowledged perusing Moreta's phone, and writing a report at the request of an SDNY prosecutor. 

 But he dodged on the rest, including messages about futbol (spelled out "futball" by the defense), saying he does not speak Spanish. The trial continues.

The case is US v. Moreta, 19-cr-307 (Stein)
